Re: SNIMTA_SPAM [SCA-JML] Re
- Yeah, I ran into that in an older translation of a work by Platina, a 15th
century Italian gourmand who wrote a treatise on foods and health. The
translation rendered a reference to grain as "corn"...for a neophyte who had
just begun working on redacting receipes...and who knew that what we
call "corn" wasn't known in Europe at this time, this was very confusing.
Finally a Latin scholar friend explained to me that this term was used in
period to refer to any kind of grain.
